$1960 USD per person including flights, 4 sharing

 

A 6-night guided tour to take in the remote Sepik River region to attend the Ambunti Crocodile Festival in the Upper Sepik and to visit villages and their spirit houses.

From Port Moresby, fly to Wewak, the gateway to the Sepik, and overnight in Wewak’s best hotel. The following morning you will be driven through the mountains to Pagwi, on the banks of the Sepik River, where you will board a motorised dugout canoe. Sitting in your comfortable wicker armchair, you will cruise upstream to Ambunti, before visiting the villages of Meno, Tongijamb, Yesan, and Mayo. These stops will give you the opportunity to see the different style spirit houses (Haus Tamabaran in Tok Pisin, the country’s lingua franca) and art styles of the Upper Sepik.  Most of the 5th, 6th, and 7th will be dedicated to the Ambunti Crocodile Festival, the largest Sing-Sing in the region. In 2015, a mere 50 tourists attended.
